Pupil comments:
“So far I have found the course challenging yet fun and enjoyable because the topics we have covered and are going to cover are very interesting and some can create debates in lessons .  Also, it is good to be in Year 10 because it is different to Key Stage 3 because the course has changed and the topics are much more interesting.”

“I enjoy RS in Year 10 because you are free to give your opinion.  Even though it is challenging, it provides us with support from our peers which develops communication”
